Australian Cabernet Symposium 2024

Australia’s only Cabernet Sauvignon conference, the Australian Cabernet Symposium (ACS), returns for the fourth time on Thursday 1 and Friday 2 February 2024.

Traditionally hosted by Coonawarra Grape and Wine Incorporated (CGWI) in South Australia’s Coonawarra, in 2024 the symposium is presented in association with Wines of Western Australia (WoWA) and sees the joining of forces of Australia’s premier Cabernet Sauvignon producing regions, Coonawarra and Margaret River.

A stellar line-up of local and international Cabernet Sauvignon experts will present on the day and be simulcast to live audiences in Coonawarra and Margaret River, followed by dinners in both states.

Day two, occurring in Coonawarra only, gives attendees the opportunity to see first-hand the latest in viticultural and winemaking innovations out in the field.

First held in 2012, the ACS provides industry colleagues and wine lovers the opportunity to network and learn about the history of the variety, as well as the latest innovations and developments occurring in the fields of wine research, viticulture, winemaking and marketing both within Australia and overseas.
